The N'Kree are an insectoid species.
Like all insects, the N'Kree had a hard exoskeleton that provided protection from physical impacts and bouts of radiation that occasionally showered their world, elongated faces, multi-jointed limbs, and spoke in a strange clicking language. N'Kree were strong despite their thin builds, and were capable of constructing massive hives and factories in concert. They were barbaric (from the point of view of other races) and viewed brutal violence as entertainment. They enjoyed watching victims trying to survive in massive execution arenas while being attacked by savage predators.
